Accessing Respiratory Centre services

Your GP, district nurse or community matron can refer you to the Respiratory Centre.  The Respiratory Centre provides a number of services that make it easier for patients to access care. These services include community home visits and nurse-led clinics in local areas. There is also a system for urgent self-referrals for patients with their GP's approval and who have previously been seen by the Respiratory Centre.

For patients who are have to be admitted to hospital, the Respiratory Centre's early assisted discharge service gives you help to go home from hospital early. The Centre also offers post-discharge reviews.
